Singapore Post Ltd said its two struggling U.S. e-commerce units, Jagged Peak and TradeGlobal, have filed voluntary petitions for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection as a six-month process to find buyers for the businesses failed. "Under the supervision of the bankruptcy court, the U.S. subsidiaries intend to pursue the sale of all or substantially all of their assets," SingPost said late on Wednesday. The underperformance of the two firms has hit profits at SingPost, which counts Singapore Telecommunications and Alibaba Group Holdings as its biggest shareholders.
